Amazing Graphics card for a pretty good price. Snag it, the X is worth it.

Great card, great price

Robert M, Amazon
12 March 2015
  • Summary: Great card, low price, fast shipping. No complaints. It has Elpida memory, so I think that keeps this card a bit cheaper than the MSI Lightning for example. You can still get a decent overclock on this Gigabyte card, but if you have no plans to overclock then there is no reason to get the MSI over...

Crossfire kills one of two of these

Barry J., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Summary: To think I was getting along with 6875s and then a R9 270. These 290Xs rock.
  • Pros: The increase in my FPS for several graphics-intense games was phenomenal. My performance in the games improved. Also, watching HD On Demand shows from my cable provider is also mind blowing.
  • Cons: But then one of my two XOC-4GD's gave up the ghost. Crossfire killed the graphics card star. Down to one XOC-4GDs. This one is actually the NEW model. The failed one is a Open Box from NewEgg, without a NewEgg return option. Now to see how Gigabyte support works for the bad one. I had called a Gi...

For those that don't want to mess with Overclocking

Michael D., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: Check your PSU for watts and connectors. I am getting decant frames on star citizen and it is not even optimized or out of beta. But It blows all other games away at max settings.
  • Pros: Runs cool and quite with the dual modes fan modes. Nice over clocking from factory.
  • Cons: "4096 X 2160(via a single HDMI connector or DisplayPort and not supported with two DVI connectors)"

Amazing card

RICHARD D., Newegg
9 February 2015
  • Summary: I am very happy with the fleet of 290X cards I bought in 2013/2014. I have two stock cards from XFX and Sapphire and this Gigabyte does outperform both in clocks and cooling. It is startlingly quieter than any card I've ever owned.
  • Pros: - Runs ~4-10°C cooler than my stock 290X cards - Overall higher overclock and power options than a stock 290X - Remarkably, at even 70% fan speed this card is still barely audible compared to similar cards that sound like leaf blowers - Gigabyte makes very good components in general, I trust them...
  • Cons: - The "fin" on the heatsink is unnecessary and cannot be seen when the card is installed in a bottom-PSU case - What happened to backplates on high-end cards? I miss them. - Price in early 2014 was ridiculous because of fad coin mining - Gigabyte software needs a LOT of work

Horrible compatibility issues with multiple audio interfaces

  • Summary: Horrible compatibility issues with multiple audio interfaces. I've been a hardcore ATI fan since 2007 and after this device I'm never buying another AMD product again.

Black Screen Of Death

RAY B., Newegg
29 January 2015
  • Pros: AMD has a better price/performance ratio than nVidia, supports Mantle API and has better Linux support for some applications. I've also gotten impressive reliability out of most Gigabyte products.
  • Cons: After driver install and boot under Windows 7 64-bit and Linux, the screen went black and would not display anything. If you search for "R9 290X black screen" you will find many others with similar problems. It seems that the factory overclocked chips just aren't up to the task. Shame on AMD.

I would recommend buying gtx 970 for same price

Usman Rauf, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Attached to my machine after making some alteration in the case and changing power supply. Display/monitor was never configured, in device manager of windows it visible and was plugged in properly. Perhaps the issue was with display ports.
